Erase space into OpenStudio

To whom it may concern,

I have started a model of an office in Openstudio. I have already run the surface matching tool. This office has 5 spaces plus a plenum. But, I noticed that I have an additional space into the OpenStudio Inspector. This space seems like a small point into the model and I cannot delete it into the OpenStudio Inspector. I have not noticed any problem or error so far into the simulation. Nevertheless, I do not want to keep going further and having issues later, because I could not erase this space during the early stages. How can I delete it? Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,

José Luis Bermúdez Alcocer, Ph.D.

You should be able to delete spaces in the OpenStudio SketchUp Plug-in using the SketchUp outliner tool (

You can also open the model in the OpenStudio Application and delete it on the Spaces tab.

Dear Prof. Dan Macumber,

Thank you for your suggestion! I finally applied the Sketchup outliner tool and worked smoothly.

Kind regards,
